Lecture 2: In this lecture we briefly reviewed material from last semester Thermo (540.203) which can
be found in chapters 1-4
Make sure to review Chapter 1
Pay special attention to
The difference between perfect and real gases,
Equations of state especia

Summary of lecture 4
In this lecture we discussed the thermodynamics of mixing and began our study of vapor
liquid equilibrium.
1. Thermodynamics of mixing (Follow derivations from section 5.2 and section 5.4 in
Atkins)
Ideal solutions:
= 0;
= 0;
= 0

Summary of lecture 10: VLE conclusion and distillation
(*please also read relevant sections in the text book including liquid-solid and related phase diagrams)
1. Some important final concepts for solving problems with VLE phase diagrams and Raoults law /

Summary of lecture 8: T-xy diagrams and summary of all Raoults law diagrams
(*Note this step by step calculation of T-xy diagrams is not in the text book but please look at the many T-xy
diagrams in the text book in section 5.7.)
1. Antoine equation and t

book; they are intended to help you understand the material

Summary of lecture 5
In this lecture we covered Henrys Law and began our study colligative properties
1. Henrys law

Like Raoults law another empirical law was suggested by William Henry
Henrys law works for real mixtures when the component is very
